NEWPORT NEWS—The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility—known locally as Jefferson Lab—will hold its second “Scientist Walks Into A Bar” program from 6pm to 7:30pm on Thursday, March 16 at Tradition Brewing Company, located at 700 Thimble Shoals Blvd. in Newport News.

The program, titled “Let’s Get Physical—Advancing Medical Care Through Discover In The Physical Sciences,” offers science with a side of suds. A joint workshop offered by the Department of Energy and National Institute of Health, the interactive discussion will be moderated by Jefferson Lab Director, Stuart Henderson.

The dialog will include input from Jefferson Lab scientists, as well as experts in the related medical and scientific fields, and representatives from regional businesses and organizations engaged in medical research and healthcare.

The event will also feature “Open the Tap,” an open topic Questions & Answers (Q&A) period that will address topics related to science and technology.

The program is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Deborah Dowd at dowd@jlab.org.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
